, a global leader in Manufacturing Operations Management and Operations Intelligence software, congratulates The Boeing Company
and the 787 Program team for the successful test flights of the first four most advanced aircraft in the industry. Intercim thanks The Boeing Company for the opportunity of being a partner on such a unique program.
The partnership between The Boeing Company and Intercim started in 2004. At that time, Boeing chose Intercim’s Pertinence Suite powered by Velocity® as a key component of the transformational manufacturing system processes defined for the 787 program. Building an airplane is an extremely complex and highly regulated process and Boeing was looking for a solution offering flexibility and scalability. The flexibility needed to be in how the company would handle reports and also gather data. In addition, Boeing wanted a scalable solution to keep pace with the growth of the program. Intercim was selected based on its ability to support these goals.

Today, Pertinence Suite in the 787’s Final Assembly is an important part of the Boeing toolkit that ensures materials and tools are accounted for throughout the process and installed according to the documented plans. On the shop floor, mechanics are equipped with a tablet PC and any information is available through the wireless device for real- time visibility on the production process of the airplane. The Pertinence Suite is helping Boeing’s partners and suppliers around the globe stay on track.
Pertinence Suite helps Boeing maintain a critical communication link with its worldwide supplier base. The solution supports the program with a real time and paperless process that improves production visibility. John Todd, Intercim CEO, concludes, “The extensive use of composite materials, a global network of component and subassembly manufacturing partners makes this aircraft truly unique; Intercim is proud to support the Boeing 787 team and to be part of this program. Our congratulations to The Boeing Company!”
